Conditional Formatting Font Color

I have a series of cells that combine in a function to produce a value in yet another cell.

If I am using blue to indicate an estimated number in a core cell how can I conditionally format the product cell to recognize an estimate and automatically produce Blue font.

For my formulas black text indicates an actual figure, so if all core cells were black the product cell would be black as well.


any thoughts?

Have you used up all your conditional formats.

Can you provide the size of you data and some examples of when you'd like it to turn the various colours

No I have not. I am not sure if what I want is possible...conditional formatting based on the formatting of another cell.

an example of the equation I use is this:

=IF(A8=0,"",(IF(AI8=0,"",(IF(AL8=0,"",(IF(AL8>0,AI8/(IF(AL8<0,AL8*-1,AL8)),AI8/(IF(AL8<0,AL8*-1,AL8)))))))))

So if AL8 is formatted blue, how can I have the product of this formula recognize that and format blue automatically. The condition would be if all three cells are black then the product cell is black. If one of the three is blue, the product cell is blue.
